The Columbus Blue Jackets have acquired center Max Domi and a third-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for forward Josh Anderson.
Domi has scored 81 goals and 170 assists in 375 career games with the Canadiens and Arizona Coyotes.
“Strengthening our center ice position has been a priority for our club and we are extremely excited to add a player of Max Domi’s talent and character to the Columbus Blue Jackets,” General Manager and Alternate Governor Jarmo Kekalainen said. “He is a skilled playmaker that also brings grit and competitiveness, and we think he will be a great addition to our team.”
Anderson has posted 65 goals and 50 assists since debuting with the Blue Jackets during the 2014-15 season. He missed 44 regular season and 10 playoff games this past season due to injury.
“Josh Anderson is a terrific hockey player and really good person and we want to thank him for his contributions to our club over the past several seasons and wish him nothing but the best in the future,” said Kekalainen.
